Rafting

Raft with Rotorua’s White Water Rafting Specialists

We pay total respect to the people of the river Ngati Hinerangi & Ngati Hinekiri – those who live now and those of years gone by.
In 1999 Kaitiaki Adventures were the first and only white water rafting company to approach the hapu of Ngati Pikiao for permission to raft commercially on their awa (River) this was subsequently discussed and agreed upon – to this day we are the still the on commercial identity to rightfully be on the awa.
